Becoming a More Independent Reader; Exploring Our Planet and U.S. History

2nd grade student presents his project

Our 2nd Grade homeschool curriculum fully immerses your child into the world of independent reading.

With our detailed Lesson Manuals as your guide, you will help your child:

  • Deepen his/her love of reading and writing through engaging texts and writing activities.
  • Explore the earth’s surface, the plant and animal world, and the characteristics of matter through hands-on science projects, investigations, and virtual labs.
  • Learn about our nation’s history, indigenous peoples, and government.
  • Continue developing a strong number-sense as well as mental-math and problem-solving skills using research-based methods.

Designed to help parents meet common state homeschooling requirements, each year-long course consists of 18-25 lessons and 160-180 days of instruction.

I used to spend endless hours planning and organizing our homeschool curriculum. With Calvert’s Lesson Manuals, I just look over the lesson the night before and we’re ready to go the next day! Calvert has done all the prep work for me and that gives me more time to focus on my kids.
